Why Your Organization NEEDS a Strategic Plan
Does your organization have a strategic plan that is assessed and updated regularly?
Strategic Planning is essential to narrowing down and articulating why your organization exists and what you specifically need to achieve success. A strong strategic plan is not having a plan simply for plans sake. It involves identifying what your organization is doing well, opportunities for improving performance, clarifying roles for staff and stakeholders, creating specific goals and objectives expressed in measurable terms as well as a method to evaluate outcomes.
